a tired and skittish electorate. mitt romney, campaigning in wisconsin, trying to erode mr. obama's support in the midwest. he took the job's numbers as support for the central plank of his campaign, but the u.s. economy has failed to recover. >> he said he was going to focus on creating jobs. instead he focused on obamacare, which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half, and then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it's actually 7.9%, and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. >> mr. romney's campaign is snapping at the heels of the incumbent president. his campaign organizers say they can and will win, but they can win only if they take the vital swing states of florida, virginia and ohio. anything less than the prospects receive for them. >> this race is very, very close. it may confound pollsters and pundits alike. it's not clear how or if hurricane sandy will affect the results, but i think we can venture this far -- president obama appears to be holding on t
campaign schedule tomorrow. but mr. romney did not want to wait for that. he started his campaign events today. i'm sorry, are you stuck doing something else? i'll take advantage of that? i'll get back on the campaign trail, i'm heading to florida. apparently you're otherwise occupied. well, i'm not. it's remarkable. it is a remarkable decision to restart his campaign today. but honestly, it is also remarkable that mr. romney never really stopped campaigning in the first place. we reported yesterday on this event that mr. romney held in dayton, ohio, yesterday afternoon. it was the event that had previously been billed as a victory rally in dayton. with the president off the campaign trail entirely to deal with the crisis, the tromny campaign realized it would be coarse to keep campaigning. the campaign's communications director put out a statement on monday saying that the romney campaign was going to be canceling all campaign events, "out of sensitivity to the millions of americans in the path of hurricane sandy." see, nthey realized like they hd to seem like they were being sensitive
. >> mr. romney's campaign is snapping at the heels of the incumbent president. his campaign organizers say they can and will win, but they can win only if they take the vital swing states of florida, virginia and ohio. anything less than the prospects receive for them. >> this race is very, very close. it may confound pollsters and pundits alike. it's not clear how or if hurricane sandy will affect the results, but i think we can venture this far -- president obama appears to be holding on to a very narrow lead. adam brooks, bbc news, washington. >> bold predictions in a tight race. as adam just reported, no state is more hotly contested than ohio. laura is in cleveland for us tonight at a cleveland market for us tonight, laura. i imagine you've been chatting to shoppers today. what have they been telling you about the state of this race? >> well, it's very interesting. the one thing that you hear above anything else is that people are totally and utterly fed up with the political ads on television. i counted 16 last night. so the major sense of it is we're really waiting for this all
and stalled wage growth, if any at all. >> reporter: and mr. romney mocked mr. obama for this proposal he outlined earlier. >> i said i want to consolidate the government agencies, we should have one secretary of business, instead of nine different departments. >> we don't need the secretary of business to understand business. we need a president who understands business. and i do. >> reporter: this afternoon in richmond, mr. romney called on supporters to give to the red cross but was interrupted by protesters. >> that is what caused this monster storm. >> reporter: at the center of the response to the storm, new york city's mayor michael bloomberg said that climate change contributed to the storm, and endorsed mr. obama as the best candidate to tackle the climate change, saying he could still inspire the hope he did four years ago, despite what mr. bloomberg called a disappointing four year term. and brian, there is still one significant event, tomorrow, the last monthly unemployment report, before the election. >> peter alexander, in virginia, thank you. with the romney campaign in vir
or more in a major rally in ohio, mr. romney is using president obama's own rhetoric about voting against him. the president suggested that his supporters should vote for revenge mitt romney in colcalifornia spring and dubuque threw that back at the president. >> today president obama it was yesterday, you probably heard about he asked supporters to vote for revenge. i ask the american people to vote for love of country. >> mr. romny -- mr. romney said that over and over and over again in an attempt to cast mr. obama and his presidency as one of division and suggest he will unite the country and reach across the aisle in a bipartisan way. the romney complaint is that president obama made promiseless of hope and change and couldn't deliver. he couldn't because of grid lock that he caused. he simply doesn't have an administration to get things done. >> analyst said it is it like a courtroom where attorneys make the closing arguments. it is getting last, but we are hearing new lineups. >> that's right. and when you have the campaigns packing their calendars as busy as they have in 73 hours a
, the smallest swing state that may be edge in mr. romney's direction. in these frenetic final days both candidates are sharpening their closing arguments to voters, mr. obama arguing for another four year. >> after four years as president you know me by now. you may not agree with every decision i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. >> reporter: mr. romney calling himself the agent of change. >> this is no time for small measures. this is time for real change and when i'm elected president on day one we'll bring real change to america! >> reporter: and as the hurricane sandy recovery effort continues, both candidates took time to mention the storm victims thursday. >> no democrats or republicans during a storm. they are just fellow americans. >> if you have a few extra dollars, send them along to the american red cross or to the salvation army or to other relief organizations, it can make a difference in the lives of our fellow citizens. >> reporter: mr. romney was then interrupted by a protester. >> what about clima
estimates that 255 are solidly in the obama camp or leaning toward him. for mr. romney it's 206. so the election will come down to the nine swing states that could go either way. bob schieffer is our chief washington correspondent and anchor of "face the nation" and, atb, what do you make of how close it is in the swing states? >> well, it started out close and it is even closer now. scott, i kind of took a survey of our pollsters. they can not recall a time when these battleground states are closer than they are right now with the possible exception of ohio where the president has a teeny lead. esl of these states are in the margin of error. what that means is there are eight battleground states out there that either of these candidates could win. it's just going to come down to who gets their voters to the polls. it's going to be all about turnout. this race is an absolute dead heat from everything that we have that we can measure it by. >> pelley: bob, thanks very much. bob will have the latest on the campaign and the aftermath of the storm this sunday on "face the nation." they'
and a half lull for the sandy disaster. mr. romney has three events here in florida, a key battleground state where the polls continue to tighten. we've been telling everybody for year-and-a-half this is likely to end up close in a number of key battleground states as well as national polls. the national polls have been within the margin literally for weeks. in florida the latest quinnepiac survey, president is up two points. well within the margin and basically reflection of rcp average which shows romney up a point. it is all so close because it doesn't mean heck of a lot in terms of differences. go to virginia where a state mr. romney is closing the gap and says president obama is up two points in the quinnepiac poll, but there is the average from "real clear politics" survey says mr. romney is leading half a point. then there is ohio. ohio the romney campaign acknowledges it will be a battle down to the very last minute and they have been trailing in some polls. quinnepiac poll has romney down five points but the "real clear politics" average is 2.4 suggesting it is very, very close. the
and the back alleys outside the event where mr. romney today will give what his aides call the closing argument of his 2012 presidential campaign. iness spence he'll be arguing that a choice for obama amounts to stag nation and more of the status quo and a choice for romney amounts to bold change and prosperity. today mr. romney did comment on the new jobless numbers from the bureau of labor statistics, unemployed ticked up a 10th of a point. he said, the jobless rate was hire than it was when president obama took office and there are still 23 million americans struggling for work. on tuesday america will make a choice between stag nation and prosperity. romney goes onto say for four years president obama's policies have crushed america's middle class, for four years president obama has told us that things are getting better and we're making progress. for so many american families those words ring hollow. romney again will be arguing this it's really a choice between owe obama's status quo and bold proposal for prosperi prosperity. the obama campaign all romney has done is offered vague policie
are having to make difficult decisions in the days ahead amidst criticism he is cutting fema mr. romney refocused campaign events to serve as relief drive. >> part of the american spirit the american way to give to people who are in need. your generosity this morning touches my heart. i appreciate what you have done. >> now the impact that any of this is going to have, this election it's tough to say. look for a moment at the mass of power outages. look how many potential swing states are affected here. new hampshire, pennsylvania, north carolina, michigan, and of course ohio. >> ohio is the big one. >> 20 minutes before the hour. these planes will not be going anywhere any time soon. at least 18,000 flights canceled as three of the nation's busiest airports shut down for sandy. that is laguardia airport in new york. it looks like a beach doesn't it? >> used to be a runway. >> a crane hanging by a thread 65 stories above a busy new york street. coming up a crane expert says it could have been prevented. >> terri joins us from our affiliate. tell us about this dramatic rescue. >> there h
islands, really? would have been more subtle to send them to visit mr. romney's bank accounts. and now it is time for the last word with laurence oh d'donneo'. have a great tight. >> tonight, we are discovering that death and devastation is worse in one part of the city than we realized. and president obama will be back on the campaign trail next nour the first time since the storm. >> my bet is on you. >> it is time for a big change. >> what the governor is offering sure ain't change. >>. >> this election will have enormous commennsequence. >> it hit very hard. >> he is not part of this conversation. >> these are critical times. >> flood watters starting to recede. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern. >> will this be the very image of this campaign? >> a republican and democrat coming together. >> their bet is on sinsism and my bet is on you. >> mike bloomberg has just endorsed the president. >> that has to hurt. >> i was someone who ran businesses. >> mitt romney's businesses don't add up. the start of the closing argument. the sprint to the finish. if you
mode in virginia yesterday. there, mr. romney blasted the president for suggesting in an interview with "morning joe" this week that he's considering creating a new secretary of business in a second term. >> i've said i want to kol sol date a whole bunch of government agencies. we should have one secretary of business instead of nine different departments that are dealing with things like getting loans to sba or helping companies with exports. there should be a one-stop shop. >> they came up with something this last week, though. the president said he's going to consider putting in place a secretary of business, all right? a department of business. well, first, of course, we already have a department of commerce. commerce and business do mean the same thing after all. but i don't happen to think that putting in a new chair in the cabinet room is going to bring new jobs to the people of america. so we got a plan to do that. >> romney campaign also out with a new ad claiming big government by the president's administration. >>> president obama picked up the endorsement yesterday of n
will read a bit of it. when he was asked about fema, mr. romney said absolutely every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the state, that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector. that's better. he talks about taking fema and divesting it into the states. yet, this week, i think that statement is many could go back to haunt him. is this more than anything a teachable moment for mitt romney? >> storms bring the best and the worst out in america. they both seem to show up during a natural disaster. a natural disaster is one that crosses a couple of states. i lived through hurricane hugo in 1989 and watched the politics of a hurricane. we were out of power. my business was down. for politicians, they have to be very careful. it can make or break a political career. this is where the american public expect the government to step up, not just for a couple of days or a couple of sound bites. right now, it is going to be the sound bites that will get us to this election. president obama has show
the election, mr. romney again put sort of more refinements to his closing arguments. he started the day in wisconsin. and paul ryan, his running mate's home state, and he outlined the state as he has all week by saying it's a choice between the stagnation of the status quo owe lama economy and the bold chain he, mitt romney, argues. he argues it will take bipartisan help. and he argues that he can, and tuesday voters have to vote for change. obviously a borrowed line from the obama campaign of '08. listen. >> if you believe america should be on a better course, if you are tired of being tired, then i ask you to vote for real change. paul ryan and i will bring real change to america from day one! >> day one, bold change, and here with 96 hours before the polls actually open on tuesday, kid rock was the opening act here a little while ago. they are predicting as many as 20,000 to 30,000. that would be the biggest crowd he's gotten in the entire campaign. >> tired of being tired. it's a big sprint ahead, karl. >> it's a crazy one. thed 6 -- the 96 hours, he will have 14 or 15 events, he wi
in the time of a national disaster. >> right, congressman ryan and mrs. romney and renaines priebu and dealing with flooding and a whoefl whole host of other issues and our priority is to help those in need and the safety of those who may be in similar trouble still in the aftermath of the storm. there will be time to get back into politics, but, you know, we've got seven days to go. right now for the next 24, 48, 72 hours we need to make sure that we're focused on helping those in need and everything else will take care of itself. >> as we know, that help is going out to fema, mobilizing resources to help the governors impacted by sandy and the people in their states. however last year it was during one of the primary debates where governor romney had this to say about what should happen in fema. take a listen. >> fema is about to run out of money and some people who say, you know, maybe we're learning a lesson that the state should take on more. how do you deal with that? >> absolutely, any time you have occasion to send it back from the federal government and send it back to the states and
virginia. garrett, we know that mr. romney is back to the -- i guess the campaign line he unveiled before hurricane sandy that he's the change candidate in this election. obviously, people instantly thinking about the candidate for change four years ago. >> that's right, tamron. it was after sort of a brief pause to focus on hurricane sandy earlier this week. we're back on the main message of the romney campaign right now, which has been underscored in the last few days, this idea that mitt romney is the change candidate. this is a change election. they say the path to victory for governor romney, it's to focus on the people who are unsatisfied with president obama's leadership and say we can bring the change, big change, bold change. he actually used the word "big change" 12 times in a speech the other day. they're trying to hammer this message home to serve many who might be disaffected by the president. hopefully turn some of these blue states like virginia back into the republican column. >> and obviously we know the importance of virginia. he's spending the entire day there. that's a
resource, the candidate's time in a serious way to win pennsylvania. mr. romney's appearance here on sunday could be a crafty political move to seriously undercut president obama, or could be a sign of desperation. either way is visit represents the biggest jolt yet in a state that has been recently largely ignored. in recent days, polls showing -obama's narrowing said. again, this morning we are talking about the non- battleground states. we will go to california, on our line for republicans, helen, you are on. caller: good morning. i am a first-time caller. please do not cut me off. host: go ahead. caller: i will be so glad when this election is over. i was raised a republican. my whole entire life, never voted anything but republican. but i tell you what, anyone -- i switched this year, i was born to go independent, but i am going to go for barack obama. anyone that will vote for mitt romney has to be a 100% raist, or have a severe -- a 100% racist or have a severe mental problem. host: are you glad you are not subject to all of the presidential ads and mailings coming and to folks in oh
across the aisle in a bipartisan way and got things done. >> steve: okay. mr. romney has talked about that, how he, you saw him at the debates talking about it, 75, 80% democrats, versus him, the lone republican governor. >> eric: fox news had a poll two nights ago that came out and found that 60% of people polled were interested in the economy and fiscal issues as their most important issues. mr. baker is on target with that. >> gretchen: let's talk about that working across the aisle. here is mitt romney. >> you want to see four more years with washington in gridlock? >> no. >> look, i know that the president wants to see four more years and that's his chant, four more years, four more years. our chant is this: five more days. all right [ cheers and applause ] by the way, i think i'll ask the leader, leader cantor, when was the last time you met with the president on the economy and jobs and the budget? he says almost a year. >> steve: meanwhile, it seems like the campaign has been going on for almost a year, actually longer. now it's down to not five days. it's four days. >> eric:
election, mike huckabee is out in columbus, ohio with us. mr. governor, big day yesterday for mitt romney. he had 30,000 people energized at an event there in ohio. one of the reasons people are excited about him he has a plan for the economy. if you look at the unemployment number yesterday it went the wrong direction. up that frar 8%. it's at 7.9%. >> steve, i will be honest with you, i think the message if i were an employer, and i am. what i say to employees is simply this. if you really want to keep your job, you need to hope barack obama doesn't keep his if you are determined that he needs to keep his you need to be prepared to lose his. if he is reelected what you have had the last four. the numbers haven't improved. many cases gotten worse because his policies are antibusiness. i know that sounds harsh but it's the hard reality. when you continue to threaten people with higher taxes, increased cost of regulation. government intervention you scare employers from wanting to hire anybody. >> gretchen: one of the words tossed about this morning is stagnation when you look at the joble
change and prosperity if mitt romney is elected. and one of the new criticisms that mr. romney says, you heard is the reference to the president's rhetoric on the trail yesterday. mr. obama was talking about g.o.p. policies on the trail and the crowd began to boo. and he said, don't boo, vote, voting is the best revenge. and romney, as you heard there a moment ago picked up on it saying, the president has now reduced his campaign to small things and attacks, whereas what romney argues notwithstanding his own attacks of president obama, is that he's offering hope and change. borrowed rhetoric from the 2008 obama campaign itself perhaps, but none of less, in that completion of his rhetoric about obama and revenge, he says, what he hopes people do is vote for their love of country. all about a positive close, notwithstanding again, the criticisms implicit and explicit throughout the stump speech in what is now 82 hours before the first polls close on the east coast tuesday night. we'll send it back to you in new york. >> brian: carl, i know you've got a sense of people on the ground that mc
. listen, you all heard what the president and mr. romney had to say, but, you know, let's talk about the political capital here. who is going to get more political capital out of this with just four days to the election, ali? >> well, hands down president obama because he had the most to lose out of this thing. the issue was if the unemployment rate went up substantially, or more importantly if the 171,000 jobs weren't created. the expectation was for 125,000 jobs. as long as he cleared that, he was going to be okay. barack obama gets more out of it. as you can see, he's not emphasizing the unemployment rate when he's speaking. mitt romney is doing that math that doesn't work thing again. barack obama said that the unemployment was going to be this and now it is this and as a result 9 million people are out of work. that's just not math that works. i don't think either of them are convincing anybody right now. this could have hurt barack obama. it is not going to hurt him. i don't know it really helps him a lot. >> yeah. it is kind of a wash when you look at the jobs numbers increase
, and wisconsin, iowa and virginia. mr. romney is also going to be on the campaign trail today. he's going to stop in new hampshire, iowa and colorado today. >>> also happening right now, hundreds of people brave the cool weather overnight for the opening of a new microsoft store, but it wasn't the store many people were waiting for. allie rasmus live this morning at the village with more on why folks were camping out. what's happening. >> reporter: that's right. it's not the store they're waiting for. it's the concert that the store is putting on as part of their grand opening. we're talking about the new microsoft store the at the village of cortomodera. it's several hundred people. the line snaked backing and forth in front of us and goes all the way back around the mall into that area you see back in the shadow where all that music is coming from. we'll show you what it looks like over there. what's going on is the grand opening of the new microsoft store, the third in the bay area. if you ask the people in line, the main reason they're here, most of them will tell you it's because later today
president obama leads mitt romney 54-3% in california. but since september romney has been able to erase mr. obama's lead from a 24-point gap to 15. >>> we are expecting sunny skies and warm temperatures this weekend. we are taking a live look outside of the city of san francisco right now, and this is what it is going to look like tomorrow at 6:30, because we are all going to be setting our clocks back tonight. don't forget about that. we may see seeing record high temperatures on tuesday, so prepare for a warm-up into next week. >>> and tomorrow on weekend early edition eyewitness news this morning rather, hurricane sandy and the presidential election. our political insiders have two different takes on the president's meeting with new jersey's govern nor. >>> barack obama and christie stood up and did what you are supposed to do if you ared leader. >> go and find the camera at the beach and hug a couple of people and take off. >> plus the debate over funding political campaigns prop 32. we are going to have both sides that have debate live in studio tomorrow on eyewitness news starting at
, republican romney said he glossed over the messier details a charged the nation will face a recession if mr. obama is re-elected. >> he said he would lower the unemployment rate, down to 5.#% now. today we learn it's actually 7.9%. that is 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when obama took office. >> former labor department official notes at this pace it would take decade to get back to full employment. >> we need to have certain growth to keep up with the population. we're still talking nine or ten years of recovery. >> yet, the president has a narrow lead in ohio because the state's unemployment rate is only 7%. the president has gotten some credit for the auto bail-out. he charged today romney is trying to win this state by falsely charging in an ad the bail-out will lead chrysler to shift jobs from jeep plant here to china. >> everybody knows it's not true. the car companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. >> romney spokeswoman stood behind the ad charging, "his mismanagement of the process exposed taxpayers to $25 billion l
compared to 46% who side with romney. on friday, mr. obama made a three-stop blitz here in ohio, staking his closing argument on the auto bailout, which is widely popular here. and which republicans oppose. he also slammed romney for claiming that jeep is shipping jobs to china. it's a claim the romney campaign defends that has been widely discredited. take a listen to what president obama had to say. >> the car companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. gm said we think creating jobs in the united states should be a source of bipartisan pride. and i couldn't agree more. >> reporter: now early voting has begun here in ohio with 35% saying they've already voted early or plan to do so. obama is leading among those voters 62-36%, but romney is up among election day voters 52-42%. the fact that president obama has a number of planned visits here in ohio before election day suggests that the obama campaign is not satisfied that they have locked down this state. as for the president's state of mind, david axelrod said the president is exhilarated and that his stump speech
